Carleton students, faculty, staff and alumni are provided with a Carleton email account.

Beware of phishing emails! If you receive an email from an address you don’t recognize, your first thought should be: is this email legitimate?  But know that malicious emails can also come from an address that you do recognize – perhaps their account got hacked and is now being used to spam people.

If you receive a phishing email do not respond to it. Move it to your junk folder (this will mark it as spam), and forward it to the ITS Service Desk. We then flag the email in the Office 365 filter system, which then marks it as spam for other users.  If the phishing email contains a link to a website, we report that website to Google and the web host (if available).

Lyris Email List Service

The Lyris Listserv is a service provided to all faculty, staff, departmental administrators and students for the purpose of teaching, researching, studying and to deliver effective communications.

At Carleton University, the Lyris ListManager is used primarily to distribute messages and send out announcements to the client community (e.g. faculty-staff list).  It is also used to communicate with other specific segments of the community (e.g. course mailing lists, etc.).

Reducing Email Spam

Spam is unsolicited e-mail sent to many people.  It is the electronic equivalent of the junk mail that is delivered to your home each week. Most spam is commercial advertising, get rich quick schemes or shady services with the sender paying very little of the actual e-mail delivery cost. Spam is usually sent from a fake e-mail address making it difficult to trace.

At ITS we provide filtering of incoming spam e-mail messages on Carleton University’s primary e-mail gateway.

Here are some tips to help you reduce the amount of spam you get in your inbox.
